It’s very rare that I do any urban photography, partly because I’m happiest in the countryside or by the sea but I’m also a little uncomfortable wandering a city centre alone with a large and conspicuous camera.
So when I spotted that the lovely Katya from Easy Insta Manchester was organising an Instacake meetup I thought it would be a great opportunity to take some city centre photos in the comfort of a group, and what a lovely group it turned out to be.
In case you are wondering, an Instacake meetup is exactly what it sounds like, an opportunity to meet up with Instagram users and eat cake (although in my case the cake was actually a croissant), drink coffee, talk about Instagram, creativity and business and then have a wander to take some pictures. A perfect way to spend a morning!
After our cake, coffee and chat we headed long the canal for a spot of photography and were very lucky with the light and the weather…
All of the images are taken with the Edge 50, I love this optic but don’t use it enough!
Most have textures added from my new Glorious Greys collection.
